Cancer clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new drug or treatment combination in addition to the standard therapies currently available. They offer the ability to be treated with a new drug that would otherwise not be accessible for years to come. To become an approved therapy, every cancer treatment must first be tested in a clinical trial. At University Cancer & Blood Center, our patients have access to our extensive list of clinical trials for the newest, most advanced cancer treatments. In some cases these trials are available at UCBC even before large academic institutions. Our clinical trial program offers trials which are being performed across the US and even worldwide.
